Former South African President Jacob Zuma has handed himself in to police to begin serving a jail sentence for contempt of court.
His Foundation said he had travelled to a prison near his home in KwaZulu-Natal province late on Wednesday.
Police had warned that they were prepared to arrest Mr Zuma, 79, if he failed to hand himself in.
Last week, he was given a 15-month jail term for contempt of court after he failed to attend a corruption inquiry.
The sentencing sparked an unprecedented legal drama in South Africa, with a deadline imposed of midnight on Wednesday (22:00 GMT) for Mr Zuma’s arrest.
The deadline was imposed after Mr Zuma refused to hand himself in on Sunday.
